The Commercial & Industrial Powerhouse of the Country

If you're in search of urban vibes, Gauteng will captivate you.

Gauteng also has a unique geological history that's evident at the World Heritage-listed Cradle of Humankind. This vast valley full of caves and fossils is one of the African continent's most important archaeological sites.

Officially, the greater Pretoria region, which also includes Centurion and few of smaller towns and townships, is called Tshwane.

Cradle of Humankind

The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site is an area of outstanding universal value. Its complex of fossil-bearing caves contains a superbly preserved record of the stages in the evolution of humankind over the past 4-million years. It's the world's richest early hominin site and is home to around 40% of the world's known human-ancestor fossils.
The recent unveiling of Homo naledi, a previously undiscovered species, put the Cradle of Humankind back in the global spotlight. According to Wits University findings, it appears Homo naledi deliberately disposed of its dead, behaviour that was previously thought to be limited to humans.
Maropeng, the official visitor centre for the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, houses an array of fascinating artefacts and research relating to human ancestry. Maropeng is the Setswana word for "returning to the place of origin".
The variety of accommodation available in the Cradle makes it easy for visitors to stay longer and explore the entire area.
